What’s romance without some chocolate or a little decadence – translated, that’s a spa treatment for two, wine and chocolate events, dining by the fire, breakfast in bed or whatever your heart desires, and it can all be found at the Jersey Cape..

Ever thought about indulging in a leisurely soak in an over-sized whirlpool tub, just the two of you, followed by a side-by-side massage and an aromatic salt scrub? Doesn’t it just sound oh, so romantic as part of a wintry escape? How about a Romance Retreat with your favorite valentine at the Salt Spa at the Reeds at Shelter Haven in Stone Harbor? Enjoy luxurious accommodations for two nights, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and a 50-minute couples’ massage in a spa retreat that is sure to carry favor with your significant other.

Add a few nights at a beachfront hotel, B & B or a cozy Inn– and, viola! – instant romance. Topping the list of romantic hotels at the Jersey Cape is the Icona Diamond Beach. With the Atlantic Ocean just steps away to lull you to sleep or add to the ambiance. The hotel has perfectly appointed suites with private views of the beach, ultra-soft robes for both of you and a full-service restaurant and lounge in the lobby. It’s the recipe for a cozy weekend with that special someone.

In the heart of Cape May’s historic district, you will find the Carroll Villa on Jackson Street. It’s one of only five Victorian hotels left in Cape May and THE spot to cozy up with your favorite date. It’s an intriguing bed and breakfast hotel with a creative and unpretentious flare – plus there’s the Mad Batter for a Bloody Mary or mimosa and breakfast on the newly designed porch – or in front of the fireplace. or

Wineries are the ideal places to celebrate your love. One thing is for sure, the romance of the vineyard is universal, and it is the perfect backdrop for you and that special someone. Many of the seven wineries located in Cape May County offer intimate settings, some with fireplaces or fire pits to gather by and taste the latest selection. Check out the Best Bets section on for a listing or wineries. Each is unique in their offerings including live music, eclectic food options and special events throughout the year.

Love is in the air and romance isn’t limited – it’s free for the taking at venues throughout Cape May County. It can be as simple – and delightful – as a blanket on the sand, a bottle of wine and a quite ending to a perfect day as the sun dips into the bay amid a palette of colors. Walks, bike rides along the Boardwalks or promenades from Ocean City to Cape May, even an afternoon of bird watching for those who love nature as much as they love each other all add to that getaway feeling just for the two of you. Isn’t it romantic!
Welcome to the cozy cape – the Jersey Cape!
